FEATHER AND STONE
AT A LOSS
It's truly amazing that only two people are responsible for the bellicose din made by Black Cobra. This pair copiously mire through the sludge in order to crank out the viscous batterings audible on the eight-track FEATHER AND STONE. This extreme excursion pummels with its mighty riffs and caustic tones in the forefront while a underlying serenity weaves in between the audio syrup on tracks like "Dragon and Phoenix". Providing a limited but powerful vocal presence while placing emphasis on thick atmospheric grooves and deliberate rhythms of doom highlighted on tracks like "Five Daggers", "Red Tide", and "Below the Cusp", the sheer volume and massive heft Black Cobra possess allows this act to surpass the aural fullness of bands double their size while remaining a well-oiled and efficient machine.
